Directions & Intros | Elder Scrolls 4: Oblivion BEST at conveying | Skyrim, Fallout 4, Morrowind

Just another POINTLESS RAMBLING VIDEO about how NPCs give directions as well as the Intro sequences in Elder Scrolls Morrowind, Oblivion, and Skyrim, as well as Fallout 3 & 4. I also, once again get into the good points and faults of the various games, because again each game has something they are better at than the others.

No, the quest indicator is stupid.

    You're talking that sense of urgency was given and then broken in Oblivion... I have the same freaking issue with Witcher 3. You gotta find Ciri cuz you're basically chasing her trail. But then there is just so much shit around you're expected to do (at least for a proper Kaer Morhen defense) that Geralt believing that Ciri is in danger and he has to find her soon becomes fake.

  • SafariMaceram

    Zaric you are parroting the same thing for almost three years now we get it you love and hate all the elderscrolls games, You like some parts of some elderscrolls games but you hate those parts at the same time. You love the lore and you hate the lore. You want a randomly generated sandbox but you dont want a randomly generated sandbox, You want roleplaying but you dont want roleplaying. Go become a full jim sterling clone already, maybe you can have better time shitting on all the games instead of only tes games.

  • Roderic Kingfield

    They should learn from Nintendo when creating the map for the next game and give every geographical feature a name, like in BotW. That would make it easier for NPCs to give quest directions. Also, I think they should do away with the main quest. Instead there should be several smaller questlines that are loosely connected to the main plot of the game, that you can do in any order.

  • TheRed Hawk

    to be honest, I rather have a cart scene rather then be told I'm pre-ordain to do everything before I even learn how to swing a sword. At least Skyrim doesn't immediately go "You are Pre-Ordain to save us!". In Skyrim , it's "hey, why don't you come to my town my Prisoner-buddy". It's actually quite a while until you actually become the dragon Born, and even then, it's a while longer before you can actually go along the process of saving everyone.

  • Sorcerous Kitty

    I miss marking my own notes on the map

  • studio of greatness

    Becuase they character had personality to if you stephen king he evensaid storytelling is everything

  • TheRed Hawk

    honestly, gonna leave this video herehttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vp4-9G47uF0&list=LLgE9sW0OA2K3GD8LvI3b0Ag&index=45should warn you though, it's 5 hours long

  • Substandard Gamer Kiba

    In Skyrim you have 10000000+ side quests and most of them are so generic I don`t want any specific directions.

  • Fridisen :3

    wait can you turn of the quest indicators? welp im stupid

  • Darkdodge

    Zaric, could you add a mod list you have been using in the video? I have a hard time trying to find what you got there, and some of the stuff I really like

  • Martin Rusche

    il mark it on your map q.q

  • Mårtin

    Zaric, mind saying what the armour mod that Ralof had is?

  • MysticAura

    Hand holding in games these days is kinda pathetic. The game devs have to assume everyone is an idiot and needs every minute detail pointed out to them, because how could the poor people actually THINK and look around.. that's too much work. Please game devs..stop making stupid proof games. Make people have to activate their brains for a change.

  • Saad

    You make a good argument, the writing in Bethesda game studios games have gotten more and more lazy, i hope they do an overhaul to their writing department as it's clearly been decreasing in quality and creativity .Another point is urgency, it has been done to death ( Fallout 3 and 4, ES 4 & 5 ), would like them to make the story progress at your own pace.

  • GorsserTuna

    i love immersive hud just to hide the quest stuff so i can just explore

  • Epic'O'Productions

    I was full out Storm-cloak until I realized General Tulius was Saul Tigh from Battlestar Galactica. I had to go full out Imperial after that. XD

  • Raphael Perry

    There's a reason why I have a Skyrim save right after getting off the cart just before the character creation menu opens up.

  • Maikel Anders Lood

    before i got mods this cart scene was so often seen for me i literally Remembered it for word to word and it actually made me get skyrim fatigue because i would be forced to go through it again.

  • Sam Bickers

    What do you think of dragon's dogma?

  • camron gremmels

    I agree i hate having to ignore all the other content and just focus on the main quest for RP the maintain any fluency

  • HeyGuy4321

    I saw a mudcrab the other day.

  • Shawn Driscoll

    26:52 Agree about the fake urgency.

  • Mixiv

    What do you think about the idea of map marking but they give you detail about the surrounding area like landmarks or people like hunters always in the area

  • Simpa5

    Fallout New Vegas and Morrowind crushes the other TES/Fallout games when it comes to game intro. Short and concise yet filled with atmosphere and that fantastic feeling that TES/Fallout gives when you exit the tutorial/intro: "Shit, I'm on my own now." with the whole world before you. :)

  • Jack Maney

    The main thing that drove me away from the Dead Rising series was that Dead Rising 2's main objective (get more Zombrex for Katie....over and over and over again....) continually kept me from exploring areas and scavenging for items to combine into new weapons at workbenches. That exploration was the most fun part of the game for me, and the game itself actively fought against letting me have that fun. I'd have dropped the Elder Scrolls franchise like a hot potato if any of the games had a timer to complete the main quest, even if the lack of urgency kinda kills immersion.

  • Steel Xcaliber

    I love The Witcher 3, but it's tutorials were awful. Probably my fault for not playing the other games first.

  • Ervin Pintar

    Can you do a video about Dynasty Warriors?

  • PhyreI3ird

    By the NINE! Thank you for explaining both sides here so well and bringing a sense of understanding to the comparisons where most people engage in the most annoying and tiresome "Mines is da bestesssst and yourz is ssssssshhhit!" and knocking one or another down for the sake of their favorite. And as somebody who truly loves all the main series (except for Arena) but leans most toward skyrim, you really hit the nail on the head for the major key appeal to it and I love how you go about your criticisms of it and the others, actually encouraging honest critical thought that isn't fueled by a superiority complex xDHelluva video man!

  • Peter Hansen

    in skyrim, you actually have a wonderful little spell called clairvoyance that could lead you to the quest goal, unfortunately they didnt make use of it more...

  • The Hat Thieves Guild

    is that old runescape music i can hear in the back?

  • ehc

    Skyrim autosaves just before the character creation screen. At least special edition does

  • Jaskaran Mangat

    I started playing Morrowind a month ago and I have logged over 300 hours on the game (with Tamriel Rebuilt) and I have to say... I now know why so many people love this game. The storytelling, worldbuilding, faction progression, politics, magic system, cities and architectural styles are so much better and fascinating than Skyrim's or Oblivion's. IMO Morrowind >>> Skyrim >>> Oblivion

  • Andrey Russian

    Agreed! No more quests. Let it be open world with planty of immersive realistic role playing options! :)

  • Skuash

    Skyrim was my first TES game and you are right, I thought the empire was the enemy and I hated them.

  • 2prize

    22:13 so your not a fan of walking simulators?

  • Carl Frank

    Sorry if this has been brought up before, but at 15:50 you say they make you get Fargoth's ring. If my memory serves, you don't actually have to get that; you can miss it entirely and still make it out of the census and excise office, can't you?

  • Cryptosporidium 137

    What would be your ideal Fallout 3 or Fallout 4 experience?

  • Chilling Villain

    Zaric, you delve into topics that most people wouldn't even think of. I really do appreciate these kind of videos, the time spent watching longer videos like these are well worth it and offer up some insight I definitely appreciate.

  • Nessie Andrew

    My first ES game was Skyrim and I chose the imperials because they looked cool!

  • Jesse McCormick

    I have a different issue with radiant quests. In Oblivion, a quest location might have characters, enemies, settings, and dialog that fit with the context of the quest given to you. In Skyrim, you're pitted against bandits who have no clue about anything relating to your quest, in non-descript hideouts that make most of the side quests feel very copy-pasted. Let's bring back detailed quests with stories instead of "Can you retrieve my sword/helmet/book/ring? I was lost/stolen in a cave/fort/ruin. I'll mark it on your map."

  • Brotato

    As amazing and well thought out as this video is, I am a little confused on your standpoint on the Oblivion tutorial. I'm not sure if you read and/or reply to comments but if someone could help me out I would be very appreciative

  • iandowdy13

    Lol. Talking about powering through the main quest of Skyrim or Fallout 4 reminded me that I still haven't finished F4 main quest and I've owned it since release

  • Eliran Tuil

    As a filthy casual, I respect you immensely but completely disagree with you.Edit:well, not completely, story was better in mw

  • Ius Sicarius

    That's what I did with World of Tanks with being stuck because I spent money. Then I just said fuck it and uninstalled that crap

  • spydrebyte

    I only watch some movies once, doesn't mean there's anything wrong with it, just have no need to experience it again. Thats the openings for me to both skyrim and oblivion, good for what they are but unnecessary on replay. MW was better IMO as it was over pretty quick so didn't really need a quickstart mod.

  • B AA

    Holy crap that mace at 04:45 is beautiful. What mod is it from?
